[Updated] Not everyone loves Tim Tebow

This made me chuckle...

We're told that Tebow already has gotten a taste of the resistance he might face at the next level.

At the Scouting Combine, the Wonderlic exam is administered to players in groups.  The 12-minute test is preceded by some brief instructions and comments from the person administering the test.

Per a league source, after the person administering the test to Tebow's group had finished, Tebow made a request that the players bow their heads in prayer before taking the 50-question exam.

Said one of the other players in response:  "Shut the f--k up."  Others players in the room then laughed.

We're not passing judgment on this one; we're just passing along what we've heard.  And it illustrates the type of challenges that could be faced by the team that drafts Tebow.

You put you head up high enough and someone is going to throw rocks at you.

Oh well...

UPDATE: Tebow denies it happened...

But Tebow says it didn't happen.

"Not one single word of it is true," Tebow told me.

Tebow has a very genuine and disarming way about him.  There's an innocence and kindness in his voice that conflicts with the image of a highly successful college quarterback, who was arguably one of the best college football players of all time. 

He was nevertheless firm and resolute in his denial.

"One of the number one things for me is being someone of character and when I say something people can take it to the bank," Tebow said.  "That story is absolutely not true."

Tebow then named several of the other players who were in the room, and he invited me to check his version with each of them.

Tebow explained that he said nothing to the group of roughly 100 players, and he said that he spoke only to BYU quarterback Max Hall.

Whatever...

Even if it isn't true this is a direct result because Tebow is so overexposed.
